Leonardo DiCaprio finally won an Oscar last night, resulting in 400,000 tweets per minute and became the most tweeted about Oscar moment in Oscar history, with good reason! We’ve been waiting for this moment for a very long time and we could not be happier.
However, the otherwise composed actor, who very charmingly and inspirationally used his speech to raise awareness about the reality of climate change, became rather giddy when getting his Oscar engraved. From drumming his fingers on the counter, grinning from ear to ear and joking around, Leo could not stand still.
“Do you do this every year? DiCaprio asked. And after the talented and very lucky man who got to engrave Leonardo’s Oscar responded, Leo said “I wouldn’t know.” You’ve got to appreciate his subtle humour there especially since the classic joke “I have as many Oscars as Leonardo DiCaprio,” has officially come to its end.
After receiving the personalised award he held it up for the world to see, claiming the victory he so very much deserved as one of the world’s most formidable actors and we have expected him to whisper “I’ll never let go Oscar.”
